25 Feb 22. Online learning: Hybrid radionuclide imaging (PET-MR)
Hybrid radionuclide imaging (PET-MR) is a first year course in the Edinburgh Imaging Academy’s post-graduate PET-MR principles and applications Certificate. It can also be taken not-for-credit as CPD / CME.
Our online Hybrid radionuclide imaging (PET-MR) (HPMR) course brings together key theoretical and practical information about radiopharmacy, positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging.
It describes the combined PET-MR technique, and covers issues around patient management. Some clinical and research applications illustrate how PET-MR is implemented.
You can download our syllabus, which includes all the learning objectives for each module and lecture, here:
We offer multiple options for studying Hybrid radionuclide imaging (PET-MR):
As a stand-alone course, gaining university credits:
- Starts in January / Winter / Semester 2
- 10 university credits
- As a stand-alone course, without university credits for CPD / CME preparation:
- Starts anytime
- Embedded in one of our online degree programmes:
We asked Dr Adriana Tavares, Research Fellow in PET Imaging & main tutor for the Hybrid radionuclide imaging (PET-MR) course, to describe the course in more detail:
Who is the HPMR course aimed at?
This course is aimed at colleagues working in the field of medical imaging either in the clinic or in the research context who seek to learn more about PET and MR imaging. The course materials can also be valuable assets to undergraduate and post-graduate students wanting to learn more about PET-MR imaging to support their studies as well as boost their professional development and knowledge level.
What can you learn in the HPMR course?
The course covers basic theoretical concepts in PET imaging as well as practical aspects of conducting PET-MR studies. It also covers fundamentals of PET radiotracer production, general PET physics, including acquisition and reconstruction principles. Quality control methods routinely used in PET departments are reviewed alongside practical aspects of PET-MR imaging.
What benefits can you get from our online study options?
Online study options can provide the student with excellent flexibility to learn new and exciting topics remotely. The PET-MR course was designed to convey important knowledge via online pre-recorded lectures while maintaining a close link between student and tutor via the course active forum.
What outcomes / what can you expect at the end of the HPMR course?
At the end of the course you can expect to have a wider understanding of PET-MR techniques, ranging from fundamental PET physics to radiochemistry and practical considerations on MR safety.
